Personally I've liked ECX 100x better than Dels and all of the people that I know personally have pretty much felt the same.

Yeah that sucked but there were 2 things affecting that to my knowledge (unofficial duh). 1) There's a certain amount of time they need to wait after a lightning/thunder strike before we can take the field again and 2) it LOOKED like there was a big open spot for about an hour's worth of clear on the radar as we were waiting it out. It was kind of clear, but not an hour's worth haha. So we took the field again and THEN the 40 min break with the downpour. Eh not much you can do. sucks that all my **** worked great till the LAST game of the day where the hopper fried out!

to my memory (which isnt the best) My team was on deck and we were ready to play and then we asked the ref what was up and why we werent called and he said they were delaying it untill the weather got better, their prediction was about 30 min or so.

so we were kinda pissed cause we were about to play so then we finally get to play again and somehow a game gets in before us so we wait it out. the chrono ref says get on the field!! like yells it so we walk on, and hear boooooom. turn around and walk back off with no questions asked lol. so then we waited more for the lighting which is only like 15-20 without any signs of it coming back...

thats what i remember lol

I have a few things to say about this GPL especially.

Uh, I played 5 man just on sunday and everything was cruising till the playoffs. We went 7-1 and then made the wild card to make the finals. Then due to a huge mishearing/misunderstanding, Rick kicked out one of our players for saying "get outta here" to one of our players for being excited we made the wild card. So we played finals with 4 players and won 2 games against ether and navy then got shafted the third game and if you were there you knew what happened and i dont wanna get into it.

Then after started playing really good in teh finals Rick, who left our player at the front gate to wait till GPL was over, went and picked him up and brought him back simply saying ohh your team is doing very well you should go watch. How the **** do you have the nerve to do that. I know that its your property but dont be a dick and kick people out for **** you think you hear over 75 feet away. Then dont ahve the nerve to curse out the players at your field when we simply tried to talk. thats all.

You weren't shafted. A ref watched you take heat going for the flag and saw a paintball break on your shoulder while you were still 4 or 5 steps from the flag. It wasn't even close.

Well it amazing Kyle how the story changes. First off in our attempt to grow the sport along with every other league that cares about the sport we have implimented the no cursing rule several years ago. But I am sure you are one of those people who know all the rules, but never bothered to look at them. Then all the captains were told this as well at the captains meeting because we had some huge, non-paintball, outside sponsor looking to invest in the sport for the teams, but I am sure you probably were not paying attention at the meeting either. Then when you player was asked to watch his mouth, said ok, then did it again, I guess 3 warnings was not enough.

Then myself, Cyndi, Eric Holland and Rick Guyer even spoke to you team and told you how to handle the situation that would have settled the issue and would have gotten you player to come back and play. BUT, once again your teams did not listen at all. I personally witness 2 players go back up to Rick and get in his face. We told you what to do, but I guess you were either too stuburn or just plain stupid to listen.

Your player was asked to leave after 3 warnings. Not sure what you meant by huge mis-hearing or understanding since the player when I personally went with Rick out to talk to the player and the player apoligized many, many times and admitted he did it and he was wrong. Also after the player apoligized to Rick, he was told that it goes no farther, he can not play the rest of the day, but the issue is over and forgotten. Then Rick told him the team was doing good and beat Ether with 4 as he brought the player back to the field to watch the games.

Best of sucess to you and your team elsewhere.

It does look like that but im not jumping to conclusions but if its true i think that is a tad harsh. I mean im sure the sponsor would not not sponsor gpl just because some one cursed. People curse oh well. Last year you may say that there was no cursing but i never ever seen a ref throw someone out for just a curse. And its not like every single game people were cursing people off. Go to the nppl and listen to ollie langs speach. And nppl is the biggest league and is the league that brought paintball to tv. And i mean come one especially in the finals thats just ****ed up. Not saying it was guarnteed but if they almost won with 4 players im pretty sure Bad Blood would be at there house right now looking at new dm8s if they had 5.
